I need help. (self harm)
Well, the other month i tried to commit suicide, i'm getting help but i've said to everyone i don't self harm any more and they believe me. I stopped self harming over a year ago but some nasty comments drove me to try and OD, i obviously failed, so now i self harm again, any sharp object i have on me i'll use. I do it everyday, i cover it up, i always wear long sleeves and pants, 4 years of self harming i've realised it's not healthy and i need help, i don't want to tell anyone because i think they'll think i'm weird or i'll disappoint them. Everyone at school has found out but i just deny it, i'm now known s the 'emo kid' That doesn't help with the situation either. I just hope one day i can say 'I USED to self-harm, but now i'm in a better place, i'm proud of myself.' But i just don't think i can, i can't see it.
